Here at TRIO SSS our goal is to provide students with services, resources, and information to help them transfer to a four year or obtain an Associate Degree. The TRIO Student Support Services Program (SSS) is a federally funded program focused on increasing student success, graduation, and transfer rates for West Los Angeles College students.


Program activities and services include:

  • Student success workshops

  • Assistance with transferring to four-year institutions
  • University tours
  • One-on-one Tutoring
  • Cultural Enrichment Activities
  • Textbook/E-book, Laptop, and Calculator access
  • Access to office resources including printing and scantrons 


To qualify for the program, participants must:

  • Be a U.S citizen or meet federal residence guidelines AND at least one of the following: 
  • Be a first-generation college student (Parent / legal guardian that you lived with prior to the age of 18 does not have a four-year Bachelor's degree)
